Maquoketa Valley Electric Cooperative prides itself on reliable service. During the past year, our members were on line 99.99% of the time. When power outages do occur, local linemen and state of the art technology allow us to restore service quickly. As a member-owned cooperative our rates are priced fairly and equitably with a focus on service rather than profit. Margins are returned to member-owners through patronage dividends.
